Catch-up tutoring

The Department for Education has announced that as part of the tutoring fund, it will make a one-off, ring-fenced grant of up to £96M for colleges, sixth forms and all 16-19 providers.

The funds will provide for small group tutoring activity for disadvantaged 16-19 students whose studies have been disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schools were already set to receive significant investment from the Government’s £1 billion Covid catch-up package next academic year, but the package has now been extended to include 16-19 providers.
